Community Tasting Notes 5

    July 28, 2019 - Popped and poured on Sunday afternoon.

    Wine is surprisingly light colored. Slightly cloudy, not that bright. Nice crimson color.

    On nose, spice forward. Baking spices, five spice powder, red fruit. Really nice. Like an intense Sonoma Coast PN but more spice forward and less fruit predominant.

    On palate, wine is sound. Really beautiful - full body, good acid structure, palate matches nose.

    What a great wine! I have several bottles and I'm supposed to save them, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    June 29, 2019 - Consistently a good wine vintage to vintage. I recently had a 2013 (a more difficult vintage than the 2017) and I was surprised how much this reminded me on that. The is ready to drink with a nice balance of fruit and tannins. A 92 for this seems spot on. I would drink this earlier than later, but it probably has legs to go to 2027 or so.

    June 23, 2019 - Really enjoyed this, loads of layers of fresh ripe fruit, fresh herbs a little spice and pepper, but it was the layers of velvety tannins that got me. This is one for the cellar. 94+

    May 20, 2019 - At winery open house 5/18/19, medium-to-full-bodied red and blue fruits with a very nice extended finish. Delicious now, likely better in a year or two. Upside potential to taste and score.

    May 17, 2019 - Willamette Valley May 2019; 5/17/2019-5/18/2019: Just classic. Typical aromaticity, with rich cherries and spice. On palate it's spice forward with a decent tannic structure. Drink it, age it - either will work well.
